- election which is encouraging even more people to stop looking for what. >> but the question is not whether the and employment rate is 8.1% or 8.3%. the question is whether it is better than when the president took office? >> absolutely not. when you have the worst employment participation in 30 years -- in the three and a half years of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the pres

for the next 24 hours for the remainder of the election. >> are we entering an era in which the rhetorical measurement is if you lose as opposed to if you win. would you say that is the circumstance to which candidates -- winning is nice, but not losing is the thing. >> that could be what they are looking at. the risk factor is so high, but not losing is sometimes more important. this year for obama in particular. >> the fact that the headline seems to be -- the gaff ise of the headline. >> -- the gaffe is the headline. >> i am wondering what would be the most important thing for me to look at when i am watching the debate. what would be the number 1. the debate is open. what should i be looking at? >> my perspective would be the thing you want to look for is, democratic leadership. how does this person perform democratic leadership? as americans we have conflicting expectations that the president be democratic, or ordinary, someone who acts like we would, someone who will subordinate themselves to the public will and be a public servant. someone who was democratic and with the people, but
and gentlemen, it is my pleasure at the outset to express my congratulations to mr. jeremich on his election to the presidency of the general assembly. i should also like to commend another leader for his leadership at last year's session. i should like to express our sincere gratitude and k-meciation to mr. ban oon secretary-general, of -- ban ki-moon, secretary general of the united nations, for his starters, objectives, and purposes. mr. president -- three years ago, a despot who rolled my country for 43 years -- ruled my country for 43 years, he stood on this very platform and torpor a copy of the charter of -- tore a copy of the united nations, saying he did not recognize the authority of the document. today, i am standing on the same platform, asserting my country's support of the charter of the united nations and our respect for it. i stand before you today, before the entire world, to apologize for all the harm, all the crime, committed by that despot against so many innocents. to apologize for the extortion and terrorism he meted on so many states. i should like to stress that the l
in this election, so is it going to be sharp sometimes? absolutely. people have a good sense of where i want to take the country, where governor romney -- >> so there you have the president saying, well, do we go overboard and make mistakes, that happens. yesterday, cnn was pressing mitt romney on the welfare matter. he made the statement that, well, whenever we have made mistakes or false claims, we have corrected them. are any of you aware of any corrective ads the romney campaign -- the romney campaign was not even when cnn pressed them for examples. they have not corrected anything -- romney seems to have stated that they have made some incorrect claims. i think that the likelihood is that we will hear some twisted or false claims coming out because this is not unique to this particular campaign. this has been going on for a long time. we have pretty strong evidence that the greeks holding forth in the agora in athens, 2500 years ago, were pulling the wool over the eyes of voters even back then. at least with obama, as of we have heard, he is somewhat more circumspect when speaking in pe
election. it is hard to imagine being nice to the americans. this bilateral focus is not the way to go. how do we go about doing it? two things that are important when looking ahead. one is that there is an opportunity with the situation we have got, there is the opportunity to look at many of the questions in a different context, and these are mainly regional. 2011 was a lousy year for me. it was not such a lousy year for india-pakistan relations. it was not such a lousy year for elements of the pakistani economy. we focus on the most dynamic elements. they are not necessarily those that we use as partners after 2008. the most dynamic partners are business people, the media, and it is uneven, but some of the people in the universities. the women's groups, the ngo's. i am not trying to talk about this rosy, friendly, civil society, in a sense that those of us looked to civil society. it is infinitely more complex and more typical than the eurocentric notions would have it. but this is a part of pakistan, where if you talk to the pakistan is, who are furious with the united states -- if you
assembly on his election. i would also like to commend the leadership of last year's session. i would also like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to mr. ban ki moon, secretary-general of the united nations, for all the efforts he is making to realize the charters, objectives, and purposes. mr. president, three years ago, a despot who ruled my country for 42 years with oppression and an iron fist, he stood on this very rostrum and tore a copy of the charter of the united nations, saying he did not recognize the authority of that document. today, i am standing on the very same rostrum affirming my country support of the charter of the united nations and our respect for it. i stand before you today, before the entire world, to apologize for all the harm, all the crimes committed by that does but against -- that despot against so many citizens, for the terrorism he needed on some of the states. -- he meted on so many states. i would like to stress we are determined to build a state that respects its neighbors, one that respects its international commitments and believes that gen
the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built bridges across oceans and cultures, and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that the united nations represents. he acted with humility, but he also stood up for a set of principles -- a belief that individuals should be free to determine their own destiny, and live with liberty, dignity, justice, and opportunity. the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for th
have done and can do. my opponent voted against every one of them. it is amazing during an election year where he has all the sudden had pieces of legislation that are supposed to help the people of nevada when he has never helped them before. it is important to ensure we never get in this mess again. i voted for sensible wall street reform to hold the wall street banks accountable. they have got us into this problem. our fellow citizens have lost their homes, lost their jobs, and my opponent is busy supporting wall street. i supported the wall street reform act because i want to hold these people accountable for what they did to this country. my opponent voted against it. he is still standing with the big guys against the people who are in foreclosure. instead of protecting the people in the state of nevada, he is working on wall street. >> thank you. >> senator heller, what is nv's best role as a producer of renewable energy and its technology? to what extent should the federal government subsidize these endeavors? >> first of all, think for the question. -- thank you for the ques
